Well, since everyone is talking about their weather = ETN was so cold last night that I had to bundle up in my husband's tube socks and sweat pants with matching jacket plus with a quilt pulled over me. Today I had to wear a light jacket outside, and already tonight I've shut down the circulating fans and am under a quilt. It is COLD!!!!

I wouldn't mind some weather like that. We've had too much sun here, and one wall of the house catches it all day long. Damn thing turns into a space heater sad.gif


Edit:

And now we've got a pretty heavy-duty thunderstorm kicking off, or possibly two in opposite directions. I wouldn't say it's raining, it's more like the tide's coming in. ohmy.gif

You need an extended porch roof on that side with hanging plants or a row of Boxwood bushes along the outer edge below it - the plants absorb the heat, especially the bushes; and that little bit of shade can drop the temp in the house by a LOT.

Around this area people build them out of any materials they can find, even make just awnings out of cloth (or woven straw = thatch) - just something to shade the side the sun lays on.


Example:

Here is one just made out of painted metal which absorbs heat, but it still gives the shade needed along that house side:

Boxwood bushes grow really fast, and would block the sun and absorb the heat; or you can screen it with a colored screen too.

Unfortunately the wall in question is right up against the street, so there's literally nothing that can be done about it.

Still I suppose it's pretty good to have during the winter.

How far away is this beach?

200 miles or 200 yards?

It is like fast travel in Beth games. It is all relevant. laugh.gif

I've never liked the beach.

Me neither. When I was younger, I would dig my hands deep in the mushy mud and let the clams nibble at my skin, but Galveston beach has so much glass and stuff that it's hard to do that now. It's so trashy.

I do enjoy walking around sunset, searching for sand dollars and shark's teeth, though. My family has a superstition that if you found a shark's teeth, you would have a lucky month. If you found a fully intact sand dollar, you would have a blessed year. I've always nearly found a shark's teeth, but my brother would find it after I lost it, and I've only found partial sand dollars.

But open water scares me. If I can't see to the bottom, I don't want to go in. I once stepped on a flounder...twice... my mom said she's never seen me sprint up to the shore so fast in her life, lol

Then there was a time when my brother got pinched very close to his special man parts XD

I just get freaked out by large quantities of water. I can't even go swimming. The second I get in the water I tremble uncontrollably from head to foot, so much that my teeth chatter. Swimming lessons when I was at school were nothing short of torture for me.

Sometimes I challenge it by seeing how long I can endure standing on a bridge over the river in the park nearby.

And that last part had me wincing ohmy.gif
Elisabeth Hollow
It cracked me up, lol. he was like seven, and he was such a little jerk at that age. Every age. My brother is a jerk still. So for me it was sweet, sweet justice lol

I can do pools. That's about it. But I don't go on boats, I don't allow my son to go on boats, nothing lol

I'm still wincing laugh.gif I can't help it, I'm a guy.

Urgh. Don't talk to me about boats. I get very seasick. The only time I've been on a boat I was literally green when I got back on land. And that was just going down the Thames.*shudders*
Elisabeth Hollow
We used to go on my grandfather's boat, but for some reason I suddenly became afraid of water. I can't place when, though. Nothing particularly terrible happened.
Callidus Thorn
That's kinda weird. Maybe something did happen, but you've blocked the memory of it?

But can we move on from the subject of water? I don't mean to be rude or anything, but it's giving me goosebumps.
Elisabeth Hollow
Yeah, sure.

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

I really should have thought of a topic to switch to... embarrased.gif
Elisabeth Hollow
damnit Callidus XD

There are a number of topics we could discuss, but they aren't "family friendly," so that's no good.

Hmmm...
Callidus Thorn
Dammit, those ones are always the more interesting topics laugh.gif

I'd suggest the weather, but even our heatwaves can't compare to your everyday weather rollinglaugh.gif
Elisabeth Hollow
what about this youtube video? XD
Callidus Thorn
*Clicks link*

*Watches for 22 seconds before closing tab due to massive bafflement*

Well, that was weird. rollinglaugh.gif
Elisabeth Hollow
I watched the whole thing. ALL OF IT.

Hah, you should see me when I'm out for a walk in the evenings. Most people don't dare get within arms reach of me, provided they ca pull off the move without being too obvious. Or at least, what they think isn't too obvious. It always is though...
Elisabeth Hollow
Poor Callidus XD

sad.gif

But it is hilarious seeing guys half the size of me again, in a group, moving out of my way like I'm the grim reaper or something. laugh.gif

Maybe they see my pendants and think I'm into some really weird stuff, who knows?
Elisabeth Hollow
Probably. Satan worshiper! XD

I think more than one's mistaken my hammer pendant for something along those lines laugh.gif

Who knows what they make of my Odhinnic pendant...

Or that hammer ring of mine...

laugh.gif


Night y'all
Elisabeth Hollow
When you get up, I can update you on my stalker. having a female stalker isn't as sexy as it sounds.

Mornin' all
Elisabeth Hollow
I haven't slept yet.
Callidus Thorn
You haven't slept yet? Isn't it getting absurdly early for you?
Elisabeth Hollow
It's three in the morning. I was almost asleep around ten at night, but my husband's brother found me passed out on the couch and shined a light in my eyes, waking me up lol
Callidus Thorn
Now how's that for irony.

It was only two in the morning when you told me to get some sleep laugh.gif

And why'd he shine a light in your eyes?
Elisabeth Hollow
I was having sensory issues and had icy aches, so I was wearing a jacket. He thought I was my husband's crackhead cousin who breaks into the house to sleep on the couch.

Also crazy stalker chick found out where I lived, after NEVER MENTIONING IT ANYWHERE. She sent me a letter, then started messaging my husband.
